O autorovi (2022)

John Alexander Joyce (1842–1915) was a literary figure known for his work 'Shakspere: Personal Recollections' (1909), which stands as a curious and unique piece in the world of Shakespearean literature. Joyce claimed a direct lineage to the Bard through his imagination and sought to create a biographical account that combined historical knowledge, personal anecdote, and romanticized narrative. However, his book has been subject to criticism and skepticism from scholars due to its anecdotal nature and the author's fanciful claims of personal ties to Shakespeare, which lack factual evidence. Joyce's literary style in 'Shakspere: Personal Recollections' employs a conversational tone and a somewhat gossamer thread to history, blurring the lines between reality and fiction. Despite this, his work does offer insights into the societal perceptions and mythologizing of Shakespeare's life and times during Joyce's era. Joyce's approach to writing was marked by a zealous admiration for Shakespeare, and his text seeks to bring a sense of intimacy to the playwright's legacy. While not a definitive reference for scholars seeking factual biographical information on William Shakespeare, Joyce's book remains a testament to the enduring fascination and idolization that surrounds the iconic figure in literature.
